Reporting to Camp

Interesting to see that while all of the Phillies regular position players are already in camp, players you would think would want to get there as soon as possible to get the coaches attention, even if unofficially since they can’t have organized workouts, aren’t there yet.  I’m referring to report in Inquirer this morning that players such as Tagg Bozied, Matt Rizzotti, and Freddy Galvis still aren’t in camp.  To me, unless they have serious family emergencies or injuries, they should have shown up weeks ago. Maybe it’s a financial thing- which I understand- but this is the opportunity to impress, and given that all three are in position to at least be one of the first call-ups in case of injury, I question their thinking.
